845-Megawatt Combined-Cycle Generating Station
This generating station is a modern, combined-cycle, natural gas-fueled facility that produces up to 845 megawatts of electricity. The plant is located in Alabama and began operation in 2002. It was the first large scale, combined-cycle project built by a non-utility power producer in the state.
Our customer was looking for ways to help reduce, if not eliminate, slips, trips and falls in their facility. Grated steps had worn out and steel ladder rungs were becoming slippery. By placing Safeguard Hi-Traction™ Anti-Slip Step Covers on all of their grated steps, they have significantly reduced the chances of employee slip-and-fall accidents. Safeguard Hi-Traction™ Anti-Slip Ladder Rung Covers have all but eliminated slips-and-falls caused by rain and ice.
Based on the success at this plant, our customer presented Safeguard Hi-Traction™ Anti-Slip Step Covers and Ladder Rung Covers at their annual corporate safety meeting. Since that presentation, Safeguard has been contacted by several locations across the country, with many plants having already allocated funds for Hi-Traction Covers into their 2013 budget.
Success stories like this are a common thread at Safeguard Technology and we encourage our distributors to use this information for generating business in your area of the world!
